A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a ‘rejuvenation’ procedure that some people consider when the skin has lost some elasticity. The best candidates for facelift surgery are those patients who demonstrate the above signs of facial ageing but still have some skin elasticity. Generally this includes patients who are in their 40s to 70s, although older patients occasionally are candidates.
It’s extremely important that you are in good general overall physical and mental health, and it’s crucial that you have realistic expectations. A facelift is not meant to completely alter your appearance or make you look like someone else. It’s a way to turn back the hands of time and restore your once youthful appearance, but it is not a method to solve personal problems or psychological issues.
Time can be cruel to our skin and nowhere does it show as much as on the face. As our skin starts to sag on the face and neck we can begin to look more and more tired. The results of a face and neck lift can breathe new life into your appearance and give you an overall more youthful look.
Saying good-bye to another 10 years does not mean good-bye to your youth.
The skin of the face and neck is pulled upwards and back. At the same time, fatty deposits under the chin and along the jaw line can be removed and the muscles tightened. The cheeks can also be filled out to give a more youthful look.
